Using Message Boxes in Excel

Message boxes are a great way to provide feedback to users of your Excel spreadsheet. They can be used to display information, warnings, or errors. Message boxes can also be used to get input from the user. In this article, we'll take a look at how to use message boxes in Excel.

When you want to display information to the user, you can use the MsgBox function. This function takes two arguments: the message to display, and the title of the message box. The title is optional, but it's a good idea to include it so that users know where the message is coming from. For example:

MsgBox "This is my message.", "My Message Box"

If you want to display a warning message, you can use the Warning function. This function takes two arguments: the message to display, and the title of the message box. The title is optional, but it's a good idea to include it so that users know where the message is coming from. For example:

Warning "This is my warning.", "My Warning"

If you want to display an error message, you can use the Error function. This function takes two arguments: the message to display, and the title of the message box. The title is optional, but it's a good idea to include it so that users know where the message is coming from. For example:

Error "This is my error.", "My Error"

If you want to get input from the user, you can use the InputBox function. This function takes three arguments: the prompt text, the title of the input box, and the default value (optional). The prompt text is displayed to the user in the input box, and the default value is pre-filled in the input box (if provided). For example:

InputBox "Please enter your name:", "My Input Box", "John Doe"
